It’s not so much music for airports as it is the music of them—a soundtrack to the tangled web of emotions and anxieties one feels when traveling great distances in huge metal machines that always have some small chance of arriving at a Final Destination other than the one we hoped for. Perhaps the album is just mislabeled.
Health officials confirm that Montefiore Hospital will be the only place to hear these pieces, making this music that most of us would want to be in a position to ignore altogether.
Speaking about the construction of the dense choral pieces on the album, Eno explains:
The Brian Eno of 1974 played up the “eccentric” rock star angle.
Ambient 1: Music for Airports is the sixth studio album by Brian Eno, released by Polydor Records in 1978.
Then you are likely struck by how the music allows your mind the space to breathe", Davidson wrote, "and in doing so, adapts itself to your mood". AllMusic stated that "like a fine painting, these evolving soundscapes don't require constant involvement on the part of the listener yet the music also rewards close attention with a sonic richness absent in standard types of background or easy listening music." Slant Magazine described the effect of the compositions as "sheer weightlessness." Q described it as "soothing and sublime, a useful album when you're feeling particulary delicate." In a positive review, Pitchfork Media wrote that the album as "gives the listener nothing to hold onto, remaining as transitory as its location, and added that it "realizes music's capacity to unify contrasting conceptions of time.".

Talking about a section of tape with two pianos, Eno told Downbeat in 1979 that, "To make a piece of music out of it, I cut that part out, made a stereo loop on the 24-track, then I discovered I liked it best at half speed, so the instruments sounded very soft, and the whole movement was very slow." It's interesting to think that while it all sounds so smooth and placid, there's really a lot of technical manipulation going on to make the piece sound so serene.

Like a fine painting, these evolving soundscapes don't require constant involvement on the part of the listener.
